Celebrating 10 Years of Beers

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is celebrating 10 years of beers with a party on Saturday, Sept. 30.

We’re renewing our vows after a decade of business, with multiple new beers (and an old favorite) available all day:


Something Old: Lucid Kolsch

Something New: Ain’t No Mountains in Memphis Hard Soda and Tin Cup, a 10th Anniversary Beer

Something Borrowed: Burn the Witch Black Lager by our good friends at Meddlesome Brewing Co.

Something Blue: Blue Raspberry Dockside


The taproom will be open regular hours 1-10 p.m. with the Church Brothers kicking off the music at 5 p.m., followed by Jeff Hulett and the Hand Me Downs at 6 p.m. 

Smoke N’ Rolls will parked near the I Love Memphis mural.

We’ll have a screen set up showing a slideshow with 10 years of pictures. Come by to share your favorite memories (and a few beers) with us!


Lots of Beer in September

Even with launching beer across the state and a great 901 Day at the Ravine, we still have a busy September with two festivals in Midtown.

On Sept. 16, we’re back in Cooper-Young, partying with the only festival in town, the Cooper-York Festival.

Our Midtown brewery will be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with music by Jeff Hulett, Solar Powered Love, and Johnny and the Seagulls.

We’ll have vendors in our parking lot and food provided by Good Groceries and Soi #9.

There will also be festival shirts for sale in the taproom.

On Sept. 30, we’re commemorating a decade of beer with our 10th Anniversary Party.

Jeff Hulett’s full band will be playing and we’ll have several special beers, some new and some from the past. Smoke N’ Rolls food truck will be on site. The taproom will be open regular hours 1-10 p.m. that day.

In addition to our Memphis activities, we’re also attending the Nashville Brew Fest on Sept. 29, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Hope to see you out and enjoying some beer as festival season really cranks up.


Memphis Made Expands Across Tennessee

Now you can enjoy Memphis Made Brewing Co. beers all across the great state of Tennessee!

We’ve expanded our distribution network, sending Cat Nap, Fireside, and GonerBrau kegs and cans to bars, restaurants, grocery stores and more all the way to the North Carolina state line.

In addition to various independent retailers, you can find our beer in 14 Kroger stores in Nashville, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Spring Hill, Maryville, Brentwood, Columbia, Oak Ridge, Powell, Hermitage, and Lebanon as well as Whole Foods in Chattanooga. It is also on tap at the Three Casks restaurant at Nashville International Airport. If you know of a place you’d like to see our beer, give us a shout.

To help launch our beers across Tennessee, we’ll be doing a beer tasting Friday, Sept. 8 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Frugal Macdoogal in Nashville. We’ll also be at the Nashville Brewfest on Friday, Sept. 29. Both great chances to come out and talk Memphis beer with us. 

Memphis Made has been selling beer in Shelby County since 2013 and expanded into West Tennessee and North Mississippi in recent years. With our new production brewery opening in Downtown Memphis, we’re excited to be able to expand production across Tennessee with more expansions being planned.


Ale to Tail Beer Dinner at Central BBQ Downtown

Memphis Made Brewing Co. is partnering with our good friends at Central BBQ for an Ale to Tail Beer Dinner this month.

This whole hog roast will be held Saturday, Aug. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Central BBQ’s Downtown location.

Appetizers will be served at 6 p.m. and dinner service will begin at 6:30 featuring a Slow Smoked whole hog by Craig Blondis and classic Southern side dishes by Chef Marisa Griffith. 

In addition to the whole hog, expect for pimento cheese tarts, green goddess deviled eggs, dill pickle fritter with comeback sauce, Craig's potato salad, Roger's hoecakes, succotash with fresh veggies, tomato pie and a mix of Central BBQ deserts.

These foods will be paired with suggested beers like Fireside, GonerBrau and Cat Nap and more.

It's been years since we've had an Ale to Tail Beer Dinner at Central BBQ and we can't wait for this one.

Space is limited, so make sure to grab your tickets. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.

Cheers to 25 Years!

In Hawaii, the term Pau Hana means “done working,” but on a deeper level it means time to put aside work worries and unwind with some friends over a few frosty beverages and some good food.

This year, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of our neighbor and one of Memphis’ best restaurants, Tsunami, with this limited edition beer.

Pau Hana Ale is brewed with Kveik yeast and has notes of jasmine rice, brown sugar, Thai basil, lime, and coriander.

Refreshing and aromatic, it’s perfect after a long shift.

We packaged a limited amount of these beers and they'll be available at Tsunami and our taproom.

Congrats to Tsunami. Here’s to another 25 years.
